- ... Serotonin, a known neurotransmitter, also functions as an angiokine to promote angiogenesis. The majority of serotonin in the human body is stored in platelets, and platelet aggregation leads to significant release of serotonin in thrombotic tumor environment. We have investigated serotonin signaling in human endothelial cells. Through G-protein-coupled receptors, serotonin at physiologically rele ...
